    How do you select the new ( Loopers) on a new pedal board , with the updated 1.2 Plethora X5 ?

    • MrJohn
      TC-Mike just like the other pedals : switch to EDIT mode , select pedal slot and then select the looper from the list of FX pedals with the EFFECT encoder. Push ENCODER to load it to slot . You can load up to 5 loopers on your board .

    Digging the sounds on the Plethora so far.

     

    I'm trying to get it talking to my Boss ES-5 loop switcher. I WANT to be able to select a patch on the ES-5 and have it recall a setup on the Plethora. For example...I want to have loop 1 on and all the others off on patch 1, then when I press the patch 2 button have loop one off and loop 3 and 4 on...etc. Pretty standard stuff. I've got the latest firmware on the Plethora and seen the CC MIDI info in the menu.

    I've programmed plenty of MIDI nstudd before...but I am stuggling here. Anyone got any tips. I've been serching all over and there's not a lot of info I can find on using the Plethora this way.

    I just want to use the return without the send. I have my phone plugged into the return to have a beat. This works great, but everything before the FX loop in my signal chain is muted (probably because the send is empty)

      PedroRodrigues Hi fraxyl Effectively you are correct, before the FX LOOP the signal is muted in your signal chain as you do not have a signal being send. Please consider that you would not have a return signal without having a signal being sent in the first place. Thank you

      fraxyl I understand that's how it operates, but I'm wondering if it would be possible to change this so that the signal travels both through the board and the loop in parallel? I currently have a signal coming in the return, as it's effectively just another input into the device and the send is just an output.

      • Plethora FX loop idea
        PedroRodrigues Hi fraxyl, unfortunately, this is hardwired and if no send is connected input signal is cut at insert point and there is no parallel routing option to have both the cut input of send routed around to next slot where it is then summed with the Return signal input.

        A workaround that I can propose is that it could be to record a beat on a Looper that you has on one of the slots, depending on which FX you want to have on playback.
        Eg: load Looper to slot 4 , so you have reverb on playback if slot 5 hosts a HOF 2 while guitar signal has all FX + insert.

        I hope this helps

    Hi All, 

    I'm looking for a reverse reverb toneprint to install on my Hall of fame 2 pedal, but I did't find anything like that.

    Is there anyone here that can help? 

    Thanks in advance,

    F.

    Hey guys come on!!! Y'all have had plenty of time to make more than enough pedals for everyone in on the planet but instead y'all waste that time on suing people that hurt y'all's feels on blogs and forums. At this point I'm just going to spend a good 300 bucks on a fz-2 because the original is way better than some plastic rip off.

      DavidKnighton Hello Booitsnick,
      Not sure what the pedal cost previously, but likely the margins are going up due to the increased tariffs from China. Unfortunately, these costs are ultimately passed onto the consumer.

      PedroRodrigues Hi Daniele, please be aware that the process to beam to pedal is the following:
      Launch the TonePrint app on your smartphone.
      Find the TonePrint you want to use. You can browse TonePrints by Artist or Product (i.e., pedal type). You will also find Featured TonePrints.
      Plug your guitar or bass into your TonePrint pedal.
      Turn your TonePrint pedal on.
      Hold the speaker of your smartphone next to the chosen pickup and touch “Beam to pedal”.
      Please confirm that you are using the latest version of the TonePrint App on your IPhone.
      I would suggest using a more recent IPhone running a more recent IOS to confirm that the pedal receives the Toneprint.

    Is there any way to create a toneprint on one device (an iPad, for instance) using the Toneprint Editor, and then export that toneprint data to a different device (a Mac mini, for instance) so that I don't get the "The TonePrint you have selected on the pedal is unknown to the app" message?

    I find myself frequently setting up tones at home on my Mac mini, and then needing to tweak them a bit at a venue via iPad, only I can't because the apps can't talk to each other...

    Hello, when i choose the option delay for a Hot Knob for the Delay effect, the knob works counterclock wise ( the bpm goes from 3000 Bpm fully left and 30 Bpm fully right) is this a normal behavior ? 

    Cheers from Belgium

      DavidKnighton Hello Christian,
      When you think about it, 3000BPM is a really short delay time, and 30BPM is really long. So the knob turns from left to right - short to long. By turning clockwise, you're "increasing" the delay time.

        ChristianMonhei Hello David, you are right, this make sense, but it is not very intuitive when you are in Bpm mode. Thank you

    Hello,
    I recently got a TC Electronic Plethora X5 and I'm loving it. I played with it for some time and now decided to tweak some of the settings on my computer... and I couldn't be more dissapointed.

    First: the user manual for the Toneprint app doesn't even mention the plethora, the plethora itself comes with quick start guide and no detailed manual. Why?

    Second: the toneprint app seems to be completely unprepared for interacting with plethora, I have the boards tab, that I can use for renaming and reordering the boards, which I will use for reordering the boards if I want it or not, because if you are past the first 10 or 15 boards every single click will reorder the board you clicked to a random spot in the first 10. It cannot do anything else, or I'm completely missing something. Can I delete, duplicate, create new board in the toneprint app? Most importantly: can I edit the board I have created? Can I at least edit the effect in realtime and tweak the settings to see what works? The toneprint app seems to completely not utilise the fact that the communication with the Plethora is two way. It works on the single fx pedals, so I really expected it here.

    I'm frustrated and extremely dissapointed :(

     

    Running plethora at build 1.2.18, Toneprint app at 4.4.03, and mac on catalina 10.15.7

      StaceyBaum I feel your pain Maciej. I also struggled with the reording of the boards on my Mac. When I used the app on my iPad I found it was less touchy. This forum is a great spot to voice your concerns, suggestions and questions. They do listen and want to help.

      WilliamR Hello Maciej, I highly recommend watching the plethora tutorial videos by Pedal Platform. They are very helpful.

      • Am I missing something, or the Toneprint app is the worst (with the Plethora X5)
        Azarazu Now I understand. I'm still unhappy with board management in the app and limited communication from the plethora to the app, but at least I understood the basics of how to really program that thing.


        TC - you should hire Philippe from Pedal Platform to do some official tutorials for you.
